Wicket
impressionist colorist little black dog art oil painting


I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands;
Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that.

Eyes That Can See Above the Clouds
contemporary fauve redbone coonhound dog art
bold bright post-impressionist hound dog painting

He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. ... He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile ...
